All homemade and, with a twist on the traditional presentation, it's served on mini wooden picnic benches and comes with cute mini milk bottles of strawberry smoothies. Looked and... More

Our impressions, very nice contemporary bar and restaurant. There were only two of us dining, quite a few tables for two available, unfortunately the one we were led to... More

We have never been disappointed the staff are friendly and welcoming, the wine is competitively priced and the... More

Held my 40th Birthday party at The Fox. The food was excellent (and I have received many comments to say so) and the whole afternoon was wonderful. One guest described as the best buffet they had ever had!

We have been to the Fox many times before and it never fails to provide a perfect meal for all occasions. My son booked a table for Saturday evening @7.30. When we arrived the bar area was already very busy and nearly all tables were full-best to book a table in advance! We had a warm welcome and were then... More
